An Introduction to Human Evolution


Date: 29th July 2017  


Archaeologists use the science of osteology, the study of bones, to help them understand the past. It has provided information about human evolution, the interaction of humans with their environment and the effect this had on human health and behaviour.


This short, one day course is an introduction to human evolution from the earliest hominins 7 million years ago through to modern Homo sapiens. It will cover contemporaneous adaptive types, such as Australopithecus and ‘robust australopithecines’ (also known as Paranthropus), the diversity of the Homo genus as it spread out across the world, and the osteological evidence for health and behaviour.


At the end of this course participants will have a good introductory knowledge of how humans evolved, what we know about their physical characteristics, the environments in which they lived and how we classify them.
